An interesting question but probably more reelvant in the Denon owner's thread for the model vs. the Atmos general thread.

I would assume that the internal amps of the 5200 could run the Tannoy...

Hit the INFO button on your Denon remote. What's it reporting as the input signal?

If the input signal was Atmos then "Dolby Surround" wouldn't even be a possible option.

Have you checked the...

A) This is caused by Dynamic Volume. When the signal drops it slowly "eases in" to the full volume as it modulates the dynamics, probably to prevent accidentally being scary loud at first.

I would be shocked if there was a dramatic audible difference between FH+TM and TF+TR. The angular differences are pretty miminal -- TF and FH largely overlap in angles, although a bigger difference...

Based on the responses so far it appears to be an inconsistent issue, probably related to HDMI handshake goofs with certain source devices. I have never had it happen with my X5200.

All versions of MultEQ are multipoint calibration. It's fundamental to Audyssey philosophy. 6 positions in basic MultEQ and 8 positions max in XT (which the 3311 has) or the most advanced XT32.
